preparation for a kiss, not yet (camera angle). Too much attention and importance placed on a character and her story -> funny. I know I laughed when I saw Carey Mulligan sitting on a chair by herself at the Christmas party. Sorry just rambling notes I wrote before going to bed.
Maybe I'm crazy... but I think she should have gone with the older gentleman, but the farmer had undying love for her too. Too bad that she had to realized her love after the mistake of what most girls do even in this area... fall for the bad boy... take note ladies !!
It's really interesting to see Vinterberg tackle this genre, augmenting his probing handheld camerawork with stunning, painterly compositions. He's especially attuned to the colors and textures the period pastoral setting allows him, catching broad swaths of light across a spectrum of luminous colors. And Mulligan radiates such a magnetic presence that it's hard to resist.
